slowly into stride, soon recovered to chase leaders, pushed along and going for gap on far rail when badly hampered and all but fell entering final 2f, weakened and eased, not recover
Scommettitrice bids for a hat-trick of course victories after her latest win over 6f when she had Tenancy and Pharoh Jake close behind with Grand Honour well beaten. She'd also beaten Simple Rhythm earlier but today's soft ground is a worry for her and it would be no surprise if Tenancy turns the tables with David Evans' sprinter. The latter handler also runs WHITEOAK LADY who makes more appeal in today's going having gone close here last time when beating the re-opposing Perfect Honour and White Shift. She looks capable of going one better in this similar company.
